    I traveled on this route many times n i observed many people drive agressively on that downhil but its all because of higher gear on a very steeep slope n suddenly people applied full brakes n after the 2-3 times of hard braking brake pad overheated n loose their friction with the disk.....

    It depends on the slope, some time 2nd gear works good and some time you have to shift into 1st gear.I saw that most of the people was using the brakes over there and i was also doing the same thing but when i smell that the brake shoes are burning, i cooled them down at the water fall and they were litteraly burning. And after few turns all these accidents took place.

    it means we should avoid breaking as much as we can at slopes.

    @saifi can u clear wht gear we use on steep slopes and why pad got over heated on slope ? plz give me detailz.

    Bhai have you ever heard about engine Braking?
    I think no so its very easy to understand

    When you accelerate your car on initial 2 gears its accelerate to a limited speed because of gear function.

    So on steep slopes its advised to drive in 2nd or 1st gear if you ever noticed it on Kaller Kahar downhill on motorway from Isloo – Lahore section its clearly written on many boards (Gaari Chotay Gear may utaray).

    In ordinary Cars ( the which we used ) braking system is not like ralley Cars or Circuit Cars we are using economical technology.

    So let’s come to the point on a Steep Slope if you are driving on 3rd or 4th gear car will speed up as of slope without any noticeable power from engine because 3rd n 4th gears are for higher speeds n when a sharp turn came suddenly you applied full brakes car slowed down. One Thing I Clear you here Friction Creates Energy n when Brake Pads touches with Disk while braking to slow down the Car its start getting heat up. So because of continuously hard breaking both things became so hot that Brakes Fail because there is no friction in between them. On the Other hand if you are driving slow on 1st or second gears when you release the Gas pedal your car engine help you to slow the car because of low gear. N with the little help of Braking system you can slow or stop your car

    Bhai don't ever tried it again to cool them with cold water just leave them as it is for some time to cool down because when you applied cold water on burning hot disk it bends sometime n also weakened its strength..... so be careful next time

    Remember very basic principle of hill driving, whenever descending always use the gear in which you climbed the same hill, you will never meet an accident inshaAllah

    People usually take advantage of the down hill. But its too much dangerous. Happy to see the family survived. Pretty lucky!
